they are pictures of the grand prismatic spring in yellowstone.
the blue clouds are created by vapourized minerals and the orange is a crazy bacteria that likes the heat (aka thermophile) and produces energy with the same pigment that turns leaves orange in fall.

and yes, sulfuric acid is involved somehow.
